Thanks for your help. Would someone who knows nothing about electronics be able to do it?! How do you get into the PSP to the Power circuit board?

It may make a person without hardware experience a bit nervous to do, since you'll need to disassemble part of the PSP, but it is not all that difficult. Of course if your PSP is still under warranty, might as well get Sony to fix it. Otherwise, doing it yourself should take 20-40 min. This guide shows you some of the steps you will need to follow:

http://www.llamma.com/PSP/repair/complete_psp_disassembly.htm

From that guide, removing the power switch board only really requires steps 1, 2, and 6. In summary, you need to unscrew 5 screws to remove the back plate, then pop off the bottom button bar, and then disconnect the 2 connectors from the power board, remove the board, and swap the new board in. If you have trouble reconnecting the large motherboard connector back to the power switch board, you may need to remove the LCD as well.
